The Sioux Falls Canaries announced today that Steve Shirley will not return to the team for the 2015 season.

The franchise is coming off a 33-67 season, and is the worst season in franchise history. Shirley managed the Canaries from 2007-2014. He helped the team reach its only championship in 2008, but the team failed to make the playoffs each year since 2010.

The Canaries will now conduct a search, starting immediately, for a new manager. For more information, visit the official release on the canaries website by clicking here.
